Associate in Science

Program Overview

Associate in Science

The Associate in Science degree is designed for students planning to transfer to a university to earn a bachelor's, or higher, degree. In general, the components of the degree meet requirements for majors with more stringent mathematics and science requirements. One of the great features of the program is that it offers flexibility and customization in course selection.

Earning Potential

Earnings vary depending on the major and career you choose. However, having your associate's can lead to greater job opportunities and higher earning potential as you study for your bachelor's degree.
